Sometimes, diving head first into a list of the world's most instagrammable hotel pools is the only thing to do. So here you are...
Hôtel Les Roches Rouges, France
Right on the sea front of the French Riviera, this hotel is never far from your Instagram feed.
Soho Warehouse, Los Angeles
You have to be a Soho House member to gain entry to this one, but when the pool looks like this, it’s probably worth it.
Borgo Pignano, Tuscany
Overlooking the Tuscan hills, this picturesque pool is no ordinary hotel hideaway. There are 750 acres to explore here, from the impeccably-converted 18th century villa.
Soneva Jani, Maldives
Each over-water villa here has its own private pool, if the idyll of the Indian Ocean isn’t enough beauty already.
Singita Lebombo Lodge, South Africa
It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that you’ll share a dip here with one of the locals (of the elephant variety).
Qualia, Queensland, Australia
In the Whitsunday Islands, qualia is one of the most luxurious lodges in Australia. The resort is accessed via Jurassic Park style gates, and the infinity pool is the resort’s pièce de résistance.
Grace Hotel, Santorini, Greece
Perched above the Aegean Sea, the view is second to none, and right in front of the caldera, ready for sunset.
Sun Gardens Dubrovnik, Croatia
Steps away from a picturesque beach, this is an elegant pool with everything you need to settle in for the day.
The Other Side, Bahamas
With just six rooms, it’s easy to pretend the whole hotel, and pool with direct beach access, are entirely yours.
Alila Villas, Uluwatu, Bali
Sitting high on the rugged Bukit Peninsula, this pool has panoramic views over the Indian Ocean (there’s a pool to every villa, too).
Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Italy
On Lake Como, the hotel is, as the name suggests, grand and elegant, steeped in history. Head for the water-on-water floating pool on the lake, it’s right by the Champagne bar…
No pool round-up is complete without mentioning Amangiri, the sleek sandstone hideaway in the depths of Utah’s Navajo country.
